ABSTRACT OF THE TALK

When I founded Kesque in 2019, my goal was to Kubernetes as the base platform for all our software. Because Kesque was a cloud-based SaaS powered by Apache Pulsar, that meant getting Apache Pulsar, a high-performance streaming solution and Kafka alternative, up and running in Kubernetes. In this talk, I will give an overview of Apache Pulsar and describe how we got Pulsar up and running in Kubernetes. We will cover some of the features of Pulsar that make it "cloud-native" and easy to run in Kubernetes as well as some of the challenges we faced and how we solved them. Kesque was acquired by DataStax, which is a strong supporter of Kubernetes. I will also cover how we continue to use Kubernetes as the foundation for the work we are doing at DataStax around Apache Pulsar.
